Our guest judge Alexandra Godwin sent this message
I am astonished at the care, skill, creativity and time taken by these lovely folks to enter a competition inspired by my work. It really is heart warming stuff! Judging between them was near impossible- some are technically very skilled, yet others which are more rudimentary excel in creativity as I am sure you are aware. I have had to wrestle with myself on who should win the top three places on this occasion..but I have concluded at last.
First Place Winner - Jennifer Sweeney
Second Place Winner - Nadja Hluchovsky
Third Place Winner - Krystle Boyd
Special Mentions go to the following artists:
Lenore Koppelman Ingrid Nackaerts
Izabela Piatowska Lucy Major

We are really trying to challenge you with our face painting competitions this year, and after the amazing Cities of the world entries that you sent us for January's face painting competition, we are asking for something totally different this time!
We have been inspired by this gorgeous dragon design created by Alexandra Godwin a make-up artist from Glasgow. It is a fabulous and quirky design and gave us the idea for February's Lip Art Competition.
Rules: Please read these rules carefully! please send in a design which has been created on and around the lips, the design must be painted on the lower half of the face below the nose. The nose and anything above the nose must not be painted.
To enter the competition, please email your lip art design to email@example.com with Lip Art competition in the subject line, the competition will close on 25th February at midnight UK time
